When We Wage Hope, We Make Progress

Fifteen years ago, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network galvanized an unstoppable movement to change the course of pancreatic cancer. Today, thanks to you, we see the heartening impact of our work together as research findings move into the clinic, as the federal government elevates our cause, as patients and families gain more options and more hope, as more people raise their voices to heighten awareness. Our progress this past fiscal year brings us all closer to our goal of doubling pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. And we must continue to Wage Hope.
